Hillary even cheated during the debate. She was wearing an ear bud, so they could feed her the answers. there were pictures of a guy coming out after the debate and getting papers from her podium and giving them to Lester Holt. She is just unbelievable.

Hillary is a liar and can not be trusted she will finish putting, America in danger she will run America under ground . America will never be the way it uses to be.before Obama.

Trump Rallys, tens of thousands, (plus thousands of supporters that can’t get in).
Hillary Rallys, a few hundred, Maybe.
September 30, 2016,7:07 pm
Hillary is a corrupt person, doesn’t play fair or follow rules.
September 30, 2016,6:44 pm
The only thing that hiLiary knows is that she will lose if she plays fair and by the rules. She has chester bloat, being super nice to her, nbc giving hildahad the notes prior to the debate, and her use of a teleprompter inside of her podium. Oh yeah, and let’s not forget about being fed information through her implanted ear piece.
September 30, 2016,6:23 pm
Anyone who thinks the Donald won is delusional.
September 30, 2016,6:03 pm
Two against one is fun for some, but Lester Holt and Hillary against Donald Trump is no fun. Hillary knows she cannot beat Trump fair and square!
September 30, 2016,5:50 pm
Of-Coarse, Donald won.. Hillary just played her usual lying game..
September 30, 2016,5:46 pm
Thank God Trump won!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
September 30, 2016,4:53 pm
She has done anything for the American people in 26 years
September 30, 2016,4:49 pm
The American People will lose if Liar Hillary gets in office with her rapist slick Willy husband. #neverhillary. Cheated at the debate it was obvious to a 7 grade class she had a ear piece and Judas Lester Holt betrayed his country to help her . Fire Lester for being now known as a cheat. Trump 2016🇺🇸🇨🇱🇺🇸
September 30, 2016,4:37 pm
Lester Holt won the debate. Completely rigged format!!
September 30, 2016,4:27 pm
Sam jones, im glad you are committed to vote for Trump, and so am I, but what exactly did Hillary win as you think she did ?? I saw the whole debate from start to finish, Trump hit her on nafta, collapsing Obama care, her super predator coments, which hildabeast didnt reply to, you can check that out on youtube, solyndra, the 2010 Obama funny and failed attempt to get into the funny environmental movement, check it out, youtube, what has this failure of a president done about that subject since 2010 ?? , maybe you can give Hillary credit for timing and pacing herself on this debate but that hardly makes her a winner on substances and trustworthiness, lets not forget , she is corrupted, and”extremely careless “acording to fbi director s very lenient and suspiciuos findings under very questionable set of circumstances, Trump was honest, forthcoming and didn’t go to the gutter , like hildabeast, im one of the many Trump suporters that gets those surveys, and I gave the campaing many ideas, amongst them, no more mr nice guy on the next debate.
September 29, 2016,10:43 pm
Hillary is a train wreck but she did win the debate. Trump is just not quick. His thinking is slow he has NO wit but he will always have my vote
September 29, 2016,6:06 pm
Hillary sucks, she s been sucking for 30 years, likes t talk about alternative energy, how about Obama’s solyndra fiasco, look it up folk s, no they dont want to talk about, Trump brought that up, Obama care total failure, its crashing, her tax plan, says its better than Trumps, she raise taxes on the middle class and the super rich, the middle class will end up paying, the super rich and the corporations will go where their money its treated better, more companies leaving , Hillary , you ll shrink the tax base, you and your Robin Hood socialist policies, and the millenials wi ll get stuck with tge bill,Trump cuts taxes across the board, he will increase the tax base and keep bussines here and bring them back, and it goes on and on, Hillary, you suck, in fact you stink , Trump /Pence 2016.
September 29, 2016,4:35 pm
TRUMP won the first 30 mins .Then he let her bait him he lost track of his message! Needs to train more for next debate stay on track no name calling! Watch body language Hell take a Prozac before hand
September 29, 2016,4:23 pm
As a Trump supporter I was feeling good the 1st 15-20 minutes as he knows trade deals, finances, debt, etc. He showed his knowledge and was quick and accurate. He was composed. After that it went downhill. Although Clinton’s suddenly appearing grace, smile, patience, and personality was a well rehearsed ruse, it worked. Soon Trump reverted back to his erratic, and flippant self – of course. It was soon obvious he came unprepared and thought he would just wing it as usual. I would give Crooked Clinton the edge after it was over. If Trump diminished his massive ego a bit and actually relented and accepted the process to thoroughly prepare and practice as Clinton did it would have made a big difference. If he had all his ducks in order and had well thought out and rehearsed answers/comebacks he could have owned her. He did not unfortunately. He still is in the game luckilly but cannot repead these mistakes for the second debate.
September 28, 2016,7:09 pm
Hillary Clinton was full of … platitudes and acted like a robot.
Donald Trump showed a human face.
September 28, 2016,4:40 pm
DONALD WON INSPITE OF THAT LESTER THE LOSER HOLT. WHAT A DAM BLACK LIBERAL DEMOCRAT. HE LOADED THE QUESTIONS WITH RACE AND WRONG INFO ON THE STOP AND FRISK PROGRAM BEING UNCONSTITUTIONAL. NOW LETS HAVE LOU DOBBS FOR THE MEDIATOR SO SOMEONE CAN ASK HER WHAT SHE PLANS TO DO WITH THE ILLEGAL MEXICANS AND THE 500% INCREASE OF THE SYRIANS AND WHO THE HELL IS GONNA PAY FOR THEM.GIVE THE MEN GUNS AND SEND THEM BACK TO SYRIA TO FIGHT. YOUNG MEN IN THE U.S. WERE DRAFTED TO FIGHT IN VIETNAM SO WHY CAN’T THEY FIGHT??? ONE MORE THING. DID ANYONE NOTICE THE PHONY SMILE SHE HAD. A 1/2 HOUR INTO THE DEBATE SHE STOPPED SMILING BECAUSE HER FACE MUSCLES COULDN’T STAND IT ANYMORE. GO TRUMP!!!!!!!!!!!!
September 28, 2016,1:33 pm
Hil-liar-ly, what a name to be proud of! Sources say she even had the debate questions a week or so BEFORE the debate. That’s typical of a left winger that has a propensity to cheat, lie and steal! She’s been the media & the Whitehouse darling since she announced the candidacy. She is so totally unfit to be a president is actually funny see her wasting “her” money”. Go Trump/Pence! NO more CLINTONS! Piss on em!
September 28, 2016,8:03 am
Omg, the system is so corrupt, even the debates. They attack Trump on matters that don’t matter and don’t ask Clinton about Emails, Radical Islam, Corrupt Clinton foundation that takes money from other countries, that support terrorist to sell our country to highest bidder, do corrupt! Yes could he gave done ,better but if I was up there it would have been on a cat fight with that witch!!
September 28, 2016,7:57 am
Hillary looked so smug. Please God don’t let her be President. We already had a corrupt Clinton and we don’t need another
September 28, 2016,6:25 am
The moderator was unfair to Mr. Trump. He didn’t ask Hilary about her E-mails, Benghazi bidest problems, her health problems. That are the very serious problems. How can we let such person to the WH?
September 28, 2016,1:58 am
Donald Trump did not win the debate!!!
September 28, 2016,1:29 am
I wish we can vote on the good issues instead of not supporting those people that wrote them up!
September 27, 2016,11:20 pm
Hillarys’ accounts bassed on lies most of the time, gossiping about Trump w/o facts! just a set up!
September 27, 2016,11:14 pm
Mr. Trump voiced serious concerns for our Nation. His vision
Includes redressing failures in our governmental efforts to encourage our citizens welfare. If you heard that, than Mr. Trump
won with his concerns for the welfare of all our citizens. Mrs
Clinton spent too much time on systems that have already
September 27, 2016,8:11 pm
A liberal Holt just showed how the demonrats can manipulate the debate questions.
September 27, 2016,7:21 pm
she showed her smug arrogance and disdain for the common man
September 27, 2016,7:17 pm
I am supporting Trump, yard sign, bumper sticker a few $$$ from monthly social security check but didn’t think he did well in debate. Cut Hillary too much slack. Disappointed in his low key answers and Lester Holts question to Trump and not to Hillary. Still believe it is rigged, against Trump.
September 27, 2016,6:43 pm
I believe Donald Trump did very well, considering that he was being attacked by, both, the moderator and Hillary Clinton. He was able to make many good points, while showing constraint, when personally slandered. Sure, he missed several good opportunities to switch the debate over to focus on her dismal record, or to make some key points about his plans, but he held his own. He is the better candidate.
September 27, 2016,6:41 pm
We must have been watching different debates
September 27, 2016,6:15 pm
Trump didn’t win he couldn’t keep his month shut
September 27, 2016,6:12 pm
Trump didn’t win he could’take keep his month shut.
September 27, 2016,6:09 pm
What did you do with my last comment? Knuckleheads!
September 27, 2016,6:00 pm
Hillary was dishing out her rehearsed scripts like sweet meat . Trump was gentlemanly and too defensive . He should rip her apart on issues like Benghazi , private email server , destruction of emails with bleach software , Clinton Foundation pay for play etc etc
This is serious game and stakes are very high so let her have it !!
September 27, 2016,5:36 pm
Trump came through as having common sence and knowing the problems that need to be dealt with, hillary does her puppet act and continued to evade the truth,now the next debates between the two vice presidents coming up, I think Pence will pick up where Trump left and hammer the message home.
September 27, 2016,5:20 pm
Trump I think he wanted to go after her for everything because whatever he says gets twisted by the media he is always fighting an uphill battle Trump president that’s all
September 27, 2016,4:57 pm
September 27, 2016,4:46 pm
Trump should have a 3 x 5 card:
Whenever possible bring up (even if the moderator does not) :
Bengazi, Email Server, Lies about destruction of Classified Emails, Ignorance of not knowing what is classified, Clinton Foundation ‘Pay to Play’ donations, ISIS, etc.
Must keep focused on the above and remind the listeners to dislike Hillary’s dishonesty and untrustworthiness.
Deflect any questions about birth certificate, tax returns, women’s issues, etc.
September 27, 2016,4:45 pm
Sadly I would have to say Hillary. As a conservative I expected a better delivery and answers than the ones he gave. He had numerous opportunities to press his attack on substance and did not. I hope he does next time!
September 27, 2016,4:44 pm
I thought that even though Trump was treated unfairly by the host, he was the definite winner.
September 27, 2016,4:43 pm
I watched the whole thing and Hillary was a lying idiot as usual who had a coach box and ear bug on as well as Lester Holt showed to be a poor or bias moderator and either an uninformed or lying journalist. A sham and a shame. I suggest a ittle more fairness next time. Maybe body checks. And those games played with the podiams, shameful. should not be allowed. Every thing should be approved by both sideds.
There Should be Standards Here People.
September 27, 2016,4:39 pm
That whole debate last night was a big show by the MSM to name call and shame Trump. No mention of Benghazi, missing emails/illegal private email server in her bathroom unprotected, Clinton Foundation’s crooked dealings to make her rich while giving nothing to charities, etc., etc. It was all about trying to make Trump defend himself against false claims. Hillary started the birth certificate stuff when she ran against Obama, Lester and the MSM make as if it started with Trump. Trump was the only one who could make him produce a certificate although it seemed to be recently created and not real, he left it at that, yet the media keeps trying to say he is still pushing it. A satanic beast twisting everything around ; a Liar from birth . Lord have Mercy on America .
O’Donnell will be wearing a burka . Billy Boy give Melania the eye as she was walking in.
Trump is not a politician nor secretary of state , but held his own against the Filthbag Dirtbag Scumbag Liar and the leftist biased “moderator”. Hillary is an accomplished liar and an evil person .
Mr. Trump you better take the gloves off and get mean or this puke liar B**** will be our next president and the Last nail in the coffin of our country .
When the “ subject of women ” came up , the beast said : you call all women ” pigs “; Trump replied ” only ” O’Donnell . Trump was polite and professional ; he could have said : All the Women your Husband raped and abused .
September 27, 2016,4:37 pm
Considering his challenge by both Clinton and the Moderator, he did well!
September 27, 2016,4:31 pm
I feel Trump won because he was double-timed by Clinton and the moderator. Clinton showed no emotion, she just rattled off a bunch of memorized mumbo-jumbo, tried to ride her husband’s coat tails, and showed that attitude that she thought she was better than anyone else with her patronizing grin. And the moderator even debated Trump. He fact checked Trump and let Hillary’s lies slide through.

“It’s the economy, stupid! Millions of American workers will be seeing the signs of America’s comeback in their paychecks in February. Very simply, your paychecks will be much bigger, because under our tax cuts you will be keeping more of your hard-earned money.”
